Shea butter is very thick and solid at room temperature but has a buttery rich consistency that makes it ideal for use as a natural eye cream, moisturiser, lip balm, or body butter and is used in a huge variety of products! Studies show that Shea Butter is especially great at penetrating the dermis (top skin layer), fast and contains 60% fat, making it highly emollient.
The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils and it delivers key anti-inflammatory and anti-aging components right into the skin.
Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long-term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction!
Shea butter makes a great diaper rash ointment for your baby because of its antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that can fight off yeast. It helps reduce acne and normalise skin over time. Shea butter can help improve blood circulation promoting cell regeneration while providing improved collagen production. Both cell regeneration and collagen production are important to healing diaper rashes and acne quickly.
